I don't have a writing schedule per se. I am finding that I need to make commitments to my writing so now I write a thousand words in the morning and a thousand in the evening. If I go over that number, great. But I'm committed to at least that much and it seems to be working for me. I also have a full-time job so that interferes with writing more, lol.
Oddly enough, I don't listen to anything when I write. There is background noise but mostly silence. I love music and it inspires me when I am in the musing phase, but when I write it is a distraction cause I do love it and get caught up in the music instead of my writing.
The piece I have written that I am most proud of was my dad's eulogy. I know that sounds morbid but I felt like I was able to let people know what a wonderful man he was and what a great father. I was grateful for my gift of words then because I could use them to help me and my family through our grief.
